Police Intercept Bus-Load Of Illicit Drugs, Reject N500,000 Bribe In Lagos

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) have intercepted a busload of illicit drugs at the Mile 2 area of Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

A statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said preliminary investigations revealed that the drugs were loaded in a Lagos colour LT bus, with the registration number AGL 205 YD belonging to one Alhaji, better known as General in Mushin.
“A member of the drug syndicate confessed that they picked up the consignment, which has a street value of about N10 million at Alaba Rago around 10.00pm on Saturday for shipment to Mushin.

“Luck, however, ran out on them when RRS officials on patrol stopped the bus on a routine check at about 0400hrs today. Another member of the syndicate, Oluwole Omojuyitan, aged 40 who had initially escaped the scene on a bike was arrested by the operatives after he came back with a sum of N500,000 to bribe the officers to release the drugs and suspects.

“Other arrested members of the gang include Ojukwu Omanogho aged 36 and Hope Jumbo aged 40,” Hundeyin said.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, while commending the Commander RRS, CSP Olaýinka Egbeyemi and the team have since directed that the suspects and exhibits be transferred to the Command’s headquarters for further investigations.
